Phew! I’ve finally settled back into “real life.” This week life returned to normal. After two weeks of travels and excitement between King Arthur Flour Blog & Bake™, a conference for work the day after my return and then a family vacation two days later. I returned home, unpacked and the next day hit the kitchen. I baked some goodies to participate in the Food Blogger Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry this past weekend with some other fabulous New Jersey bloggers, Amber of Bluebonnets & Brownies, Mary Kay of Homemade Cravings, Shelly of Cookies and Cups, Casey of Good. Food. Stories. and Urvashee of Dessarts. We had so many wonderful people come buy our tasty treats and support this cause. No Kid Hungry is a national charity that is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. You can help surround kids with healthy food where they live, learn and play.

Nearly 1 in 5 children in America can’t count on having enough to eat.

That’s a pretty staggering statistic. By making a tax-deductible gift to our No Kid Hungry campaign you can:

  • Connect vulnerable kids with up to 10 meals for every $1 donated
  • Build public awareness about childhood hunger & find solutions
  • Educate children & families about nutritious, affordable eating

Help end child hunger in America by making a tax-deductible gift. DONATE HERE! Thanks so much for your support for this important cause.

We had so many goodies to tempt people and reward their generosity. I made cookies and Oreo Krispie Treats. Others made cookies, cupcakes, doughnuts, blondies, and scones. Mary Kay made incredible little butter cakes! I had to buy one and it was ah-mazing. Really, who am I kidding? I did my fair share to support the bake sale and bought one (sometimes two!) of everything. But that cake got me thinking that these little bundtlets I made for BundtaMonth this week would have been the perfect cake to sell at a bake sale and perhaps they’ll make an appearance next year.

The theme for this month is berries and these mini bundts fit the bill. They’re moist, lemon cakes with plump raspberries scattered throughout the batter. Lemon and raspberries are fast friends in these lovely little cakes. They aren’t overly sweet making them ideal for an afternoon snack or even a sweet breakfast treat. A simple lemon glaze graces the top for just a little bit more bright lemon. These bundts are simple perfection but if you’d like even more berrilicious bundt ideas, see what everyone else baked up!
